In 2022 the Ameropa Foundation partnered with Swisscontact (Swiss Foundation for Technical Cooperation) for a project in Uganda - Permaculture in Support of Income and Food Security.
The intention of this project was to help improve the beneficiary’s food security, nutrition, and income through skill training on sustainable permaculture (mushroom) and horticulture (fruit and vegetable) production and marketing.
The impact created in 2 months was close to 2.2 times greater than the costs of the project. In addition, individuals have continued to be able to secure food for their families and build up a sustainable income stream.
Based on the success and impact of this project, the Foundation will continue to look for future projects to develop and implement with other partners.
